Mix in 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, 1/3 cup sliced green onions and one 30-ounce package shredded hash brown potatoes. Spoon mixture evenly into the baking dish. Mix together 2 cups crushed corn flake cereal and 1/4 cup melted butter; sprinkle evenly over potato mixture. Bake uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes or until bubbly and hot.
